“PAIN AND GLORY is Almodóvar’s best work for years, marvelously framed and composed, comparatively restrained for him, hugely enjoyable moment by moment.” – David Sexton, London Evening Standard
“Everything about PAIN AND GLORY is awake and alive, and Almodóvar’s nerve endings become ours, too.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine
“A grounded melancholic rumination on aging and artistic intent steeped in the aging director’s own experiences, it may be the closest Almodóvar comes to crafting a memoir in the medium he knows best….PAIN AND GLORY has the emotional resonance of an artist coming to terms with the intimate nature of his work, and in the pantheon of the films-about-filmmaking genre, it’s a paragon of the form — a bittersweet “8 1/2” centered on the quest of an artist in search of his own tale.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire
